Rock & Rule (1983)

"Progressive and daring for its time, Nelvana's "Rock & Rule" was the first English-speaking animated feature film ever made entirely in Canada. It features adult themes, and a stellar rock 'n' roll soundtrack including Lou Reed, Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Cheap Trick, and Earth Wind & Fire. Unfortunately, the production faced an enormous amount of hurdles and due in part to a lack of marketing and distribution, it was a box-office flop. Now, over 30 years later, 'Rock & Rule' enjoys a cult status on par with 'Heavy Metal.'"
